Fargo had a lot of jobs, low rent and cold winters.

If you’re moving to Fargo, make connections with people as much as you can. Fargo is a big city but it is a smaller world and most people are inclined to offer help or well-wishes if you are friendly. Use Facebook to find events, the Fagro Underground website or the local library and museums to connect with the community.

Anyone moving to Fargo should know it is a welcoming place and a melting pot of diverse cultures. The Police Department is very active in the community and support various local programs. The city’s manager takes an active interest in the maintenance of the roads and other infrastructure present. This makes Fargo a very great place.

Before moving to Fargo, North Dakota, one thing to consider is the temperature extremes in summer and winter. In 2019, I remember seeing the temperature was six degrees Fahrenheit and thinking it was a Christmas miracle. Besides the extreme temperatures, someone moving here should consider the type of vehicle they drive, since Fargo is prone to large amounts of snow and ice.

Fargo is larger than the capital of North Dakota and is extremely cold in winter. It is also a great cultural community with many large companies and is beautifully warmed and sunny in summer. There are two interstates that bisect the city for easy commutes in any direction.
